A visit to the potter’s house provided Jeremiah with a powerful picture of what the Lord was doing with His beloved people. The prophet saw the potter working at his wheel. 


The clay vessel in the potter’s hand spoiled, “and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.” Then, the Lord explained to Jeremiah, “Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel” (18:1-11). 


After a visit to the potter’s house, Jeremiah would never forget (nor should we) that God is the Potter and we are His clay, whom He created in His image from the dust of the earth (Genesis 1-2). Do you need a visit to the Potter’s house?
